When we sing together, that's the best of all

I was only telling someone today, if I say I'm gonna do something I do it. That's how I roll. Sorry, I can't believe I just said 'that's how I roll.'

Anyway, if you remember this (it was only May this year), then you'll be pleased to know I've joined a choir. A community choir. I went along on Monday with absolutely no preconceptions (OK, I went along on Monday with a list of preconceptions as long as yer arm) and, I have to say, had a ball. Summertime, Lean on Me, Amazing Grace...I really enjoyed it. So much so I said I'd go back. Well, with the puppy dog eyes they were giving me, I couldn't not. Even the tramp who stumbled in half way through begging for change didn't put me off (we keep it real in NG5). More updates as my choir career unfolds. I can hear Carnegie Hall calling.

  1. Good on you - sounds like a blast. I know two women of similar age to me who have joined choirs quite recently and who love it. Definitely something for me to bear in mind if I can ever find the time!

    1. To be honest, I've been wanting to dip my toe into the water for a while. In a way I'm glad I waited till now: I think I'm a little more relaxed about the type of songs we'll sing. I think the younger me would have been fare more precious about the 'set-list'.
